TRUFFLES

Serves:4,3 CarbsPerServing:15g carbs total Effort:Easy

Ingredients:

1 pkg Strawberry -- cherry, oroange, or raspberry sugarfree jello 2 cups water 1 cup heavy whipping cream8 ounces cream cheese 1 square Hershey's unsweetened baking chocolate 1 teaspoon vanilla extract artificial sweetner to taste

How to Prepare: Prepare jello as directed and chill to firm. In microwave or double broiler, melt chocolate square. Add creamchesse to soften. Stir. Remove from heat and add vanilla and sweetner until desired sweetness. Allow to cool. Whip cream until stiff peaks and add small amount of sweetner. Fold firm jello into chocolate mixture. Fold in whip cream. Chill. This recipe is really good without the jello too, but i find it to be incredibly rich and the jello just makes it taste yummier, like eating a box of chocolates!

Okay, so its not really truffles, but it tastes like them. NOTES : Counts for jello and artificial sweetener not included in totals.
